Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders has claimed that Liverpool will have a “conversation” with Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann about a possible transfer.
Man Utd is reported to be the front-runners to sign the French international if he decides to leave the Spanish giants this summer, but that will not stop Liverpool from at least having a chat with the 26-year-old according to the Welshman.
Speaking to LFC TV, Saunders is confident that the Reds are in with a shout.
“I mentioned Griezmann and Liverpool will be on his list now”, Saunders said.
“He will have a conversation with them if he’s coming to England.”
Not sure how Saunders would know this, he may have been given a heads up by someone within the club, which is very possible, or it could simply be just an opinion.
However, if United fail to make next season’s Champions League, then there is every possibility that Griezmann would consider a move to a club that is in Europe’s premier competition.
As things stand right now United remain favourites to sign the French international, but that could all change if Ajax beat the Red Devils in the Europa League final.
